scheduled to begin march 1. it is including tax changes. the president spoke to reporters for just over five minutes. >> good afternoon, everybody. i wanted to say a few words about the looming deadlines and decisions that we face on our budget and on our deficit, and these are decisions that will have real and lasting impacts on the strength and pace of our recovery. economists and business leaders from across the spectrum have said that our economy is poised for progress in 2013. and we've seen signs of this progress over the last several weeks. home prices continue to climb. car sales are at a five-year high. manufacturing has been strong. and we've created more than six million jobs in the last 35 months. but we've also seen the effects that political dysfunction can have on our economic progress. the drawn-out process for resolving the fiscal cliff hurt consumer confidence. the threat of massive automatic cuts have already started to affect business decisions. so we've been reminded that while it's critical for us to cut wasteful spending, we can't just cut our way to prosperity. deep,
their families, they are contributing. there's always the question about paying taxes. they pay taxes. you can check with the social security department. there is a large amount that those unaccounted for. they do not know who toot attribute that money to pray we need to do reform so when they pay tax it goes into the right account and it helps fund and fuel our economy. and what the mayor and the state and federal government to garner this tax dollars and not for it to be in the pocket of sun -- some unscrupulous employer who is taxing the but not sending the money on. we all know that there was an increase in the earning ability of the undocumented once the became. everyone keeps talking about innovation. let me give you a little innovation. we talked about the uncertainty of the market and what we do as a congress. the uncertainty of what we do and what that causes. i want everyone to think one moment. what you think about the uncertainty in the life of a male -- 11 million undocumented workers when you give them certainty? i will tell you what i believe they're going to do. they're going t
's new regulations or his tax increases and therefore it is all the more difficult for them to expand their businesses and create jobs in america. to add to the uncertainty, the president's proposed sequestration is set to take effect this march. despite his promise, his promise to the american people that it would never actually happen, the president has yet to take any steps to undo this harmful measure. he has shown absolute indifference to the millions of americans whose livelihoods will be severely impacted by his sequestration. house republicans have twice passed legislation to replace the president's sequester with commonsense reforms that will reduce spending, preserve and strengthen our safety net for generations and preserve our national defense. this week the house will pass a budget but it will be a responsible budget that will balance. one that will aim to grow the economy, drive down unemployment, expand opportunity and prosperity for the private sector and ensure that america maintains its leading role in the world as a strong national defender. americans can do this. w

the effects of obamacare including the medical device tax that is cutting r&d and causing layoffs across the country in the most innovative firms, the fact that so many people who were intending to no longer going into medicine, thank you, brain drain, a consequence of obamacare, and doctor who were individual practicers are either bailing and retiring all together or going into concierge care. have you heard that term? do you know the people that are shutting down their practices, dropping insurance all together where now only the wealthiest can pay for care. congratulations obamacare. heck of a job. >> stephanie: so we tried to impact that little rice ball of nonsense yesterday. and i got a letter i sent to you. dede rights malkin is right. hey, steph the hospitals systems have brought up the big doctor practices. smaller doctors were not brought into their systems. medicare pays three times the amount that they pay a single doctor. i'm related to a physician. there is going to be a shortage of doctors. i'm very concerned -- blah blah blah. what are your thoughts on
not that long ago. the companies as part of the tax reform, it didn't. that said i still think it's a decent entry point to get some of the 4.79% yield. i'd hope it goes to a better yield. keep in mind this is the big daddy of the mlps with $50 billion market capitalization. it will sell down big if another big one offers stock. it has the biggest opportunity of them right now. i believe that's bigger even than kinder morgan and more than energy transfer partners. even as etp yields 7.7%. trust me, i learned the hard way that can't make up for the price depreciation when they're as poorly run as etp was. my charitable trust sadly knows. stick with quality. it's obvious that the insiders are. who am i to say they're wrong? i hope you get a chance to buy it underneath the price of the deal. that will be a bargain. this weekend at the super bowl, everywhere i went people asked me in a low yield environment what represents the best yield right now with value? i pointedly said nothing, fixed income. you have to own master limited partners. i will tell you have it not stressed these on this show,
religious institutions ought not to be tax-exempt and get all the tax breaks that they do. they are using their tax breaks to hire lawyers that are costing the taxpayers even more money to basically just have a normal secular society. this issue of birth control, the rest of the world is laughing at us that we are even controverting over it. it should not even be an issue on the table. again, the tax-exempt status for religious institutions, i do not know if there are organizations that are trying to repeal this tax-exempt status, but i never really heard of a program on c- span about it, but these organizations, these religious institutions -- it is the tax breaks they get. host: nick from fairview, tennessee. on the independent line. caller: this is a ploy. socialists like the kennedys and obama, they will vilify -- if they cannot get it right, kruschev said, we will take two steps forward, and one step backward. we no longer live under a constitutional republic. liberals claim that it is a religious group that is against them. the state has become the major religion in this country. th
their families and contributing to it is always the question of raising taxes. they pay taxes but you can check with the social security department. there is a large fund that goes i counted four. they don't know who to attribute the money to because people have contributed to i think we need to do comprehensive immigration reform so when they pay taxes it goes into the right account and it helps to fund and fuel our economy. i want the mayor and the state and the federal government to garner those tax dollars and not to be in the pockets of some unscrupulous employer that isn't taxing them but not sending them money. plus given the 1986 legislation, we all know that there was an increase in the urning devotee of the undocumented. everybody keeps talking about innovation. let me give you a little innovation. whiteaker that the uncertainty of the market and what we do at the congress. the uncertainty about what we do and what that causes for the financial market . i just want everybody to think for one moment. what do you think about the uncertainty in the life of 11 million undocumented workers

-50 split of spending cuts and tax hikes. that's the plan democrats are leaning toward but this still really is about the economy and how to solve some of the immediate problems we have. >> yeah. i must tell you that i'm one of the progressives who agrees with the economist paul krugman on this. any time talking about deficits, we are buying in to the right wing mantra somehow deficits are killing the economy. look at great britain and doing with their austerity plans and doesn't add up. i'm much more of the mind to be proactively looking at infrastructure investment like many of the business advisers told president obama should happen. people from commerce, from industry. i get it. that won't happen as long as house republicans are dead set against it. and what we're left with is unfortunately in my view a detente to put the discussion in the frame the republicans want. what about deficits? we have a jobs crisis in this country. not a deficit crisis. to me, the whole conversation has been pushed to the right further than it should be. >> and karen, on a last note, in anticipation of the pre
. to succeed, republicans must remain united under one demand: cuts with no taxes, or we'll let the sequester go into effect. the morning after they should sit down with obama for negotiations on real tax reform as recommended by the president's own simpson-bowles commission. broaden the base, lower the rates." and it was one of the things that secretary panetta was talking about, richard, the impact, he said if this goes into effect, it won't be short term, and the ramifications would be deep, steep and devastating. is that a fair assessment, that it would be very hard to turn this around quickly? >> if you have to do all the sequester in a hurry, then yes, it's a real problem because it doesn't let the pentagon begin to plan and distribute, if you will, the cuts. but at the end of the day, whether it's defense spending, education spending, health spending, what always matters more than how much you spend is how you spend it. and so i'm not, at the end of the day, all that worried about how much we spend, whether it's on defense or anything else. you just want to have the time to make some i
